The knife featured here is a Kengata which translates as "Sword Like" and its reverse tanto tip gives the knife that very particular weapon-like look. The blade is made with a core of Aogami Super
high carbon steel which is then hammer forged to a cladding of stainless steel in the san-mai style of forge welding. The strong outer layer is given a hammer finish while the carbon forging scale has been kept on the blade for that very cool kurouchi look.
Because it is a stainless cladding, maintenance is kept to a minimum, rinse the blade and dry it after use. A nice-looking Maple octagonal handle completes this great-looking package.
